I See the Art of Seoul

Note: I own all pictures featured in this post. Thank you.

In my recent trip to Seoul (South Korea), I noticed that their streets, subways, malls, etc are peppered with art work. And when I say artwork, I don’t simply mean paintings and drawings and the like. There is art in their food, flowers, structures and of course there really is actual paintings on canvass, walls, tiles, etc. So, I’ve put together a collection of what I considered Seoul Art.

Note: Some pictures may be blurry as I only used a 3-year old 7.2 megapixel camera.
